I got my first dog there in the 90s as a kid she did awesome. Lived about 15 more years and died of old age. I own my home have a large yard and work the opposite shifts as my husband so one of us is ...always home. We’ve applied numerous times and never heard back or you all were waiting for more applications. I waited over a year and finally got a puppy from Craigslist. I would have rather saved one. See More

We went to the Kenton County Animal Shelter looking for a new family dog. The staff was very welcoming and very caring. They know all of their animals by names and it is a very clean environment. We l...ooked at two different dogs and found the perfect little girl named Brownie and we got to take her right home. Was very happy with the experience and would recommend this shelter to anyone looking for a new animal. See More

Adopted our beautiful kitty Klaus today. They were so nice and helpful. I was taught to give a pill to a cat by an employee, so happy she was able to show me that! They werent lying when they said how... scared Klaus is, he is still hiding 5 hours later but we're very excited to help him transition into his forever home! See More

It’s a very clean shelter, but from when I was there, they were very judgmental and rude toward my husband and I. And their policy of only being able to adopt at 21 is pathetic. They either need bette...r and friendlier staff, or a better policy to HELP these animals instead of caring about money and appearance more. See More

My over all experience with KCAS was fantastic. They made my first time adopting a pet so easy and they didn't hesitate to answer any of my annoying questions :) The entire adoption process went smoot...h and quick. I'm so glad I chose KCAS to look for a new addition to my family. See More

I had a great experience. We adopted 2 dogs, Compass and Coco, from here yesterday.The animals are well taken care of. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The building was clean and odor free. I ...will definitely recommend KCAS to my friends and family if they are looking to adopt or surrender a pet. See More

One of the nicest county shelters I’ve ever been in. They are truly trying to do the absolute best they can to care for these fur babies despite minimal resources.

I've been a foster mom for Kenton County for going on 3 years. I've never met a more compassionate and dedicated staff. Keep being amazing!!

We just adopted CJ. We love him so much. He likes laying by the balcony window. He loves being petted. He is such a good sweet cat. And we're so blessed to have him. Thank you so much!

We had such a great experience with this shelter. Our friend found a dog in her yard and she took it to the shelter. She posted a picture of it on Facebook and we fell in love with the dog. We live in... Toledo, Ohio so we couldn't just run over to the shelter. We worked with the shelter for a week because there is a 5 day hold on animals. They needed to assess him, neuter him and get him all set with his vaccinations. They were so easy to work with. We made the drive yesterday, there and back, without any issues. Max is happy and adjusting to his new home. We are very thankful to everyone at the shelter, especially Ella, for all of their assistance. See More

Having found three of our fur kids out of this shelter, I can say I am thoroughly happy with the conditions the pets are kept in, the staff is friendly, helpful, and genuinely wants to help you make a... match. The building and grounds are clean and inviting. The application process is simple and straight forward. If Kenton county did not have a six animal limit, our family would be more than happy to take in more. I would recommend ANY Kenton county resident to show up and find a new family member. See More

I would give this shelter a million stars if I could. We we went in Friday December 30th for a second time to look at available Dogs. We were lucky enough to leave that day with Marble, now Marvel (Ma...rv for short). All of the staff members were excellent and we could tell how much time they spent individually with our sweet boy. Thank you Kenton County Animal Shelter for giving us the gift of a new dog! Marvel is the perfect fit for us and our life style. We couldn't be more in love with him. We promise to send updates on our travels and adventures this summer with Marv. See More

I've adopted 2 kittens from here over the years (yesterday and 20 years ago) and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and makes the adoption process easy.

They lie to people, they have different policies for adoption based off breed of animal. How can you have one family able to adopt a dog that very day but tell the person behind them that the dog they... want cant be adopted that day cause you want more applications for it first and because its a certain breed? The lady behind the counter was very rude to my family when we asked valid questions. We will never come here again and strongly suggest no one else going to them for a pet. See More

First time I myself have personally adopted from a shelter. I was looking at Kittens! Very friendly staff, very clean facility, filled out the adoption application, was having trouble finding records ...on my Yorkshire Terrier I have now (confirming he had utd rabies vac) instead of giving up the woman at the desk just kept looking FINALLY found the record (No fault of hers what so ever) I'm SO glad she managed to find them instead of saying welp too bad. After that everything was a go, got a call this morning saying I could come pick up a Kitty. I'm now the proud owner of a sweet little guy named Perry :-) I Highly recommend KCAS! See More

Matt and I got our Stella here and we couldn't be happier! The staff was very helpful as I was a first time dog owner and had a lot of questions. They truly care about the animals here. I would defini...tely recommend others to adopt from Kenton County Animal Shelter! See More

My fiancé got my beautiful Duchess here last week for $40. She is a beautiful 4 year old Himalayan with bright blue eyes and absolutely loves cuddles. My fiancé says the staff was nice. They called ou...r landlord to make sure pets were allowed, which I appreciate because that just proves that they go through a meticulous process to make sure their animals are going to their furever homes. Duchess is just the sweetest girl and I couldn't have asked for a better cat. Whoever decided to give her up lost out big time. See More
